Misconceptions: Botox!!

Thank you for this topic suggestion S.G!!

A topic suggestion was made to me about addressing common misconceptions in the aesthetic field. Today I will begin by focusing on the most common fallacy I hear regarding Botox, and neuromodulators in general.

Unfortunately, this falsehood is typically propagated by aesthetic providers....and it goes something like this.

Patient: "My Botox/Dysport/Xeomin/Jeuveau didn't work."

Provider: "Ok, let's try an alternate product!"

Wrong!! Nope! Untrue...There are four neuromodulators currently approved for cosmetic use on the US market..Botox, Dysport, Xeoomin, and Jeuveau. All of these products, I repeat, all of these products are derived from the same strain, Botulinum Toxin Type A. What does this mean..this means if one product does not work, which is an extremely rare occurrence unto its self, then any other of these products will not work as well. Period, end of story...

If you are not producing the desired result, this is typically a dosing issue (need more), less typically, a technique issue..

In conclusion....No need to change your product.. Adjust the dose, and analyze technique...
